LARCHWOOD—Two Larchwood residents were arrested about 5:05 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, on drug-related charges.

The arrests of 37-year-old Jed Francis DeSmet and 27-year-old Amanda Jane Hoffman stemmed from the stop of a westbound 1992 Buick Le Sabre for an equipment violation on Highway 9 near the Fell Street intersection in Larchwood, according to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.

DeSmet, the driver, was found to have a suspended license.

Lyon County K-9 Rizzo alerted authorities to an illegal odor coming from the vehicle.

A search warrant was obtained and authorities located a plastic container in the center console that had two bags of methamphetamine, two empty bags, a pipe and a scale.

A torch lighter was found on the front middle seat and a meth pipe was found between the front passenger seat and front middle seat.

A marijuana bong also was found under the front passenger seat.

DeSmet was arrested on charges of first-offense possession of a controlled substance — meth; possession of drug paraphernalia; driving while his license was denied or revoked; driving without required high-risk insurance; driving while his license was denied, suspended, canceled or revoked; no valid driver’s license; and failure to provide proof of vehicle liability insurance.

Hoffman, the passenger, was arrested on charges of first-offense possession of a controlled substance — meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
